Best of Both Worlds: New Sunset Photo Paper Combines Fibre and Cotton Rag

Fine art printing on a fibre based cotton ragLexJet has just introduced Sunset Fibre Rag 335g as an answer to the call from photographers and fine art reproduction companies looking for the high-end air-dried look and feel on a 100 percent cotton rag base.

“This paper has a great Dmax, the color gamut is pretty amazing and the surface is nice,” says Jon Scott, owner of JS Graphics Inc., a fine art reproduction company based in Chicago. “It also comes in various sheet and roll sizes, which is great, because it gives us more flexibility in our printing. I also like working with LexJet because the pricing is fair, I like the products and I can get what I need tomorrow. I love that. We can’t afford to keep everything on the shelf, so we basically order on-demand when we need it.”

Sunset Fibre Rag is available in 8.5″ x 11″, 13″ x 19″ and 17″ x 22″ sheets and 17″ x 50′, 24″ x 50′, 36″ x 50′, 44″ x 50′ and 60″ x 50′ rolls. It has a subtle gloss finish with a very subtle textured surface with no optical brighteners, though it has a very bright neutral white point.

“Like all of our Sunset fine art and fine photo inkjet papers, this latest addition was developed to maximize the latest ink and printer technology from Canon, Epson and HP,” says LexJet product manager Alex Ried. “Sunset Fibre Rag builds on the Sunset Fibre line, applying the inkjet technology used in that line to a cotton rag base; that’s the secret sauce that makes this paper an excellent addition to anyone’s arsenal of inkjet printable materials.”

Sunset Fibre Rag 335g, like all LexJet and Sunset products, comes with a 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee, as well as $9.99 flat-rate shipping from LexJet’s nationwide network of distribution centers for quick, economical and hassle-free product delivery.

For more information, and to order, contact a LexJet customer specialist at 800-453-9538.

Borderless Printing through the Canon Plug-In for Photoshop

Borderless printing through the Canon Plug-In PhotoshopThe successful studio or print shop looks to maximize efficiency in all of its processes. This is particularly true with in-house printing, which is why the ability to print borderless and eliminate a lot of needless trimming is so important.

Before printing borderless, examine the common output sizes and buy rolls that fit those sizes. For example, if the majority of your business is selling 8×10 units, then buy 10-inch rolls. If the majority of your sales are 24x20s and 24x30s, buy 24-inch rolls.

Once you have the proper roll sizes, you simply need to set up your workflow to execute the prints properly. Keep in mind that most printers cannot print borderless on sheets (the Epson 3880, 3800, R2880 and R2400 are the only two really designed for this).

Also, keep in mind that most printers can’t print borderless on all roll sizes. Check your owner’s manual to see which roll sizes your printer can print to successfully in borderless mode.

In the video below you will learn how to print borderless images using the imagePROGRAF Print Plug-In for Photoshop.
